Bachelorette....

January 6 - 3pm Phillipine time -

First--guys you're going to be soo spoiled by my updates - I mean crap I'm doing freaking awesome - one a day for the past few days - so forgive me if it dwindles off - and I suspect it will (I have to go to work Monday night!)

so my adventures this morning.....after I left here I met Travis and I think I went in the biggest mall I've ever gone in....I bet it rivals West Edmonton Mall....Maybe not ---but it was freakin HUGE....
You SHOE fiends and PURSE fiends...man oh man there are LOTS of shoes and purses here...I must have seen 5000 pairs of shoes today - each pair different(sometimes same "shoe" different color - but nonetheless 5000 SHOES...Purses were probably 1000 different ...... Honestly I havenn't seen that many shoes or purses in my whole life!

I also have this certain "weirdness" about me....I LOVE searching for scrapbook supplies....not going to buy them..but must search for them...and I found some!! Nothing I needed (or bought - well there was one thing...Nick remember that red velvet paper that I needed for christmas cards? ... I got a piece about 30"x20" for ....drum roll please 16.75...pesos that is..which is not alot of money cause 47 pesos is a dollar! also I saw punches - like the JUMBO ones - not even Jumbo..SUPER JUMBO ---big ass ones - for 5.00 - I have a this crazy habit of buying punches when I don't really need them.. an example - I bought the "two feet" punch in hawaii cause ---well I was there....and found sbook supplies...in Disney Wes talked me into it...a disney castle punch.....what shall I buy here???

OHHH J - I need to know if you got that cutting board you wanted for Christmas??? LMK -

OH ok...now on to other stuff....SERVICE personnel (retail workers) I would say that they are 5 to one...every store you go to there are two working the cash - one ringing in and the other checking the receipt and bagging...and I mean EVERY WHERE...






so some promised pics.... More from the hotel!



this are pics from the pool..this is as you go through the door to the pool area




























these are in the pool area....

Well I have a few more...You know I couldn't go without taking some close ups of flowers.....maybe tomorrow!!

Ohmigod that looks gorgeous! As compared the gray, cold, rainy day we have here ... it looks like heaven!

Yes, I have heard that the Philippines are a shoppers paradise. I think my aunt and uncle always brought back a suitcase of stuff every time they made a trip to Freddy.

OMG, I soooo want to be there! Can I take your spot?? LOL What a beautiful area! Have you gone swimming yet?

Nicks Yacks said...

WOW, watch out I would love that place! I am not much of a shoe shopper but just to puruz the mall itself all the different stuff we can't get here.

Seriously, you found scrapping stuff?!?!!?! That is too much!

It is now 3:08PM here does that mean you are in bed now? You have any jet lag or anything?

I am a purse fiend. Your hotel looks like paradise. I can hardly see across the street due the fog here and it's 3:38 in the afternoon!

Princess said...

Oh one more thing, I read the Wes and the kids blog, and you comment about looking like a tourist/being white made me laugh so hard that JJ came over to see what was wrong. I can just HEAR you saying that!!

"The real" MarthaSue said...

LOL - well sheesh - he doesn't want me to look like a tourist...how would that be done?? I'm tellin' ya - I would not want to be an immigrant in a country where you're not the same color....the majority of people are brown short thin ppl...well let's just say I'm not brown!! You know how you hope that your children will grow up racially diverse....no looking at black ppl funny ...yeah well these ppl are holding their breath as we(travis and I) that their kids aren't going to point..MUCH... Yes children point and laugh and have that question in their eye!

Mad&Soapy said...

It looks totally amazing Sue!!! How beautiful!!! And the weather couldn't possibly be crappier here!! Having children point and laugh?? That would be crazy! Oh well...just goes to show that no matter where we are on earth, there's always some Mother somewhere traumatized by their kids behavior;) Get some sleep! Have an awsome night and good luck at work on Monday:)
